CoD by any other name is still a steaming pile of shit.

Meh, take a great series like the Mechwarrior games and crappy series like CoD, combine them, and you might end up with something not half bad.

I might pick this up IF there are bot matches. BOT matches people! They sell games! (looks sideways at the Battlefield series) Sometimes you and a buddy just want to play coop against a bunch of bots.

CoD: Ghosts is full of bots. The only real way I've played is Botmatches, and the Bots are surprisingly decent. Yeah, they occasionally shoot through plywood they shouldn't see you through (but when the plywood is boarding up a window, so I think they treat it as if it's glass), but for the most part they behave like a human, even often running past you without seeing you as humans often do.

The game isn't great, and the maps are terrible, but the addition of bots is very welcome.
And, honestly, I did about 70% of the campaign yesterday and it's massively improved. There wasn't a single instance of infinite-spawn that I noticed. It's so much better than the other ones, but MW2 and MW3 had awful campaigns.
Still not worth the money.

My point is that you need to look at this from every possible perspective and not blindly follow the lemmings in front of you.

Yep. My comeback to those that don't believe in a conspiracy is... The word wouldn't exist, if they didn't exist.

Definition: Evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons.

They are all around us, have a few going on at work, your American broadband... All this spying.... It's for realz people. People are always planning, that is the crux of business. Some for better and some for worse and many of the for worse are conspiracies.

So true.

I laugh when I hear people denying that 911 was a conspiracy. It becomes obvious that those people have forgotten what a conspiracy actually is. It's as if the word has changed meanings since 911 and the majority of people haven't even noticed. I'm glad you posted the definition. Thanks.

Anyone who doesn't think 911 was sketchy, watch videos of Building 7 falling down. It was the third building to fall - had nothing but cosmetic damage to it. It bent in the middle, then fell straight down. The media buries it too when talking heads bring it up.

Anyway, check it out.

Oh, I'm sorry, a 15 story gash wasn't serious damage?
Thousands of tons of concrete slamming into the ground right next to it doesn't cause structural damage?

Stop being so stupid. Jesus Christ. Now we're going to get into this damn argument.

What's your argument here? That there were bombs in Building 7? That the government let 9/11 happen so they could bring it down? Or do you think they were opportunistic and snuck bombs in there after the WTC was hit, without the emergency crew noticing? Or are you one of those stupid people that thinks "pull it" meant "pull the building down" not "pull the operation to save the building?" Or are you one of the really stupid people that thinks there were bombs used to bring down the Twin Towers, even though the collapse clearly starts at the point of impact from the planes.

Don't be dense, people deny it was a conspiracy by the US government against its own citizens, no one denies that it was a conspiracy against something by someone.

Stop with the "free publicity" conspiracies. They didn't comment because it would hinder their ability to do their own mysterious stuff. If they were quick to deny their involvement in things, then when something popped up they didn't deny everyone would immediately know what it was.

as for slow updates vs kickstarter - duh. You haven't paid Bethesda for Fallout 4 yet, and the second they announce is the second the grief comes. Plus anger when things change or slip. What's weird, but kind of nice, is that people act like they are owed less by kickstarter projects. I've seen nothing get the knives and pitchforks dxhr and fallout 3 got, and no slips angered as much as half life 2.

[I'm definitely wrong about some of those in-store shots.

you are still clinging to your conspiracy theories about "some" of those shots, but not all of them... thinking nobody would notice

and that is why YOU are the moron, sir!

So, then what is the explanation for why the store is already open, with people shopping peacefully, then comes the sudden rush? It really doesn't seem apparent why it happened, other than those people being insane. We're not seeing something, and it's leaving a hole in the explanation. As I said, my first thought was clearly wrong, but why did it happen?

Who said anything about a conspiracy? Do you think I'm claiming Obama or Global Warming Scientists or Reptilians did this?

Tablets are mobile internet machines and nothing more. They're not as useful as phones (which, oddly enough, function as phones AND tablets), and they're not as versatile as laptops.

I have 2 tablets (one I inherited), and neither is particularly useful for anything except playing crappy games, and surfing the internet. Contrary to marketing, I challenge anyone to do actual work on a tablet.

Yeah, which is why enterprise isn't replacing laptops, but how much work does the average computer user do at home? Hell, even banking is easier on mobile/tablets. I can deposit checks via my smartphone. I can't do that via my PC.

I work on PCs at work and at home. The facts are that right now anything office related sucks on tablets - spreadsheets, word processing, database management. I create graphics for a living - right now there is no way to create quality graphics atthe speed I need to create them on a tablet. Hell, just keeping up with personal finances spreadsheet on a tablet would be a nightmare.

Maybe one day, but right now they are squarely in the toy category. The better they get at all of the above, the more they are going to look like laptops.

There's no "maybe," this is the form factor of the immediate future.

But yes, no one is saying that it is currently good for anything office related. But office related work is a tiny fraction of computer time at home. Relative to watching YouTube videos or reading Buzzfeed lists it's absolutely minimal. Since people already have a laptop sitting in a closet somewhere, for that minimal amount of time they go to the laptop. For the rest of the time, they use the tablet.

And, in two or five years, when there's a breakthrough product that has a full PC inside a tablet form factor, that laptop in the closet will never be touched.

actually there is another explanation to consider ... which is, that you have no idea what you are talking about ... and which i would say is quite possible

or maybe you are right, and its all just a big conspiracy!

Or, there is another explanation, that I corrected myself and you simply chose to ignore it!

Did you stop reading before you commented? What kind of moron says to someone "You're wrong, you idiot" right after they say "I'm definitely wrong about what I said."




Also, what is the explanation for that .gif? Why are they all running into a previously open store at the same time?

No coffee for me.
And beer only when I'm being social - I never drink alone, but I'll order a beer if I'm out at a restaurant that has a good selection of stuff I've never heard of. I'm more likely to order a cocktail made with bourbon or gin, though.

it's crazier than black friday.

Oh come on. That is clearly a flash mob. The doors are open and people are shopping, meaning it isn't a rush of people when the store opens, it's a rush of people at a random time.

There's no explanation other than flash mob, as there's no other reason they would all be outside at the same time.

edit - at least that gif. And some of those videos. WTF? Why are they randomly running when people are already calmly in store? I'm definitely wrong about some of those in-store shots.

I finally replaced my old Dell P992 19" CRT yesterday. .24mm dot pitch, Max Resolution: 1600 x 1200 at 75 Hz, and a whopping 57 pounds. It had been on its way out for a while - made an extremely annoying clicking sound every 5 or 10 seconds when in standby, everything was starting to get fuzzy, there were parallel lines visible first on dark backgrounds (they weren't parallel to the ground, angled instead, and red), then on everything, and for the past month it's been making a high pitched hum about 20% of the time it was on.

Replaced it with a 24" Dell Ultrasharp IPS 16x10.
Very happy upgrade. My second monitor is a 23" LED that was a good deal but isn't fantastic. That replaced an old 19" 4:3 LCD.

I will solve all your problems, don't buy a console.

A friend was over yesterday, his kids want a console for xmas and he was wondering which was better. I took him down the street to watch another friends kids play a PC version of Battlefield 4 on a 4k tv. After telling him that the consoles won't support that resolution, he changed his mind and is getting them a good gaming PC.

Oh, that's so fascinating.


Indeed, what sort of system plays BF4 at 4K?

And how close are you sitting to your TV for 4K to matter?

And it isn't that "no one can figure it out," it's that having it be one way is pointless. Everyone here can admit that at least 45% of the time you try to plug it in backwards. Why? There's no technological reason for it. Worse - sometimes you had it right but it didn't slide in properly so you flipped it, then had to flip it back.

I don't understand why people have such a problem plugging in USB devices. On USB cables, the connector has the USB symbol on one side, that side faces up. For things like thumb drives, the logo usually faces up. I'd say I have damn near 100% success rate with plugging in USB devices. If a device/cable doesn't have a logo or the USB symbol wasn't printed, turn it around and look at the connector. One part of it is thicker, so you plug it in with the thick part on the bottom.

1) It's sometimes dark
2) "Faces up." What if your USB drive faces down? What if it's vertical, not horizontal?

You act as if there's standardization across devices. Plus, the whole "turn it around and look at the connector" takes longer than trying, then flipping and trying again.

Pachter is a clueless goofball. He talks non sense shit all the time to stay in the spotlight. Not sure why people keep paying attention to him. He really isn't worth it.
I am actually surprised he is still employed, should have been canned a long time ago. There are plenty of annoying cluless people on the internet that does a better job at pretending to know everything then him.

I think his employers have caught on that people 'click' on his drivel for exactly that reason. He is so universally hated that his (un)popularity is guaranteed. More clicks = More money. Lets just hope that no one tells him though.

That's not how Pachter's employers earn their money.

He may be known for click-bait, and he certainly gives Blue some of his most popular threads, but he doesn't earn his cash that way.

I don't think consumers are always quick to adopt UI changes that are actually better for them, but I think it's hard to argue that everything in Windows 8 was better. Microsoft seemed overeager to force change.

But that's also why I doubt Microsoft will ever wall off Windows. It makes no sense, plus I think they would have done something stupid to that point already. They haven't. They know it would end any chance of Enterprise for them.
